I woke up this morning and i found two really hangover boy in the kitchen..
We went to a quick shopping (its not that simple on Sunday..),i looked over the meats and i decided we going to eat chicken and i also saw a few nice sausage,quickly organised the lunch in my head,grab the stuff we needed and go home..One of the guy said he
is bored with potatoes as a side dish so i baked a really simple Serbian cornbread what i stuffed with feta cheese and big red peppers.A day ahead i made a coleslaw,that was getting ready in the fridge.But first i had to present something really quickly so
they can wait until i finish the food.We bought sausages for baking, so i just put them in a pan with a tiny bit lard and i just coloured them around.That was the starter with some cabbage salad and some fresh bread..so i could continue my work in peace.I
have this in my mind a long time ago.. i have to try chicken on a beer can, what i never did before. This sunny,cold sunday looked just right to do.I seasoned the chicken with some paprika powder -of course- and lemon pepper,rubbed in with some oil and let
it rest on room temperature for half n hour.I washed the beer,opened it and i placed the chicken on top,it was really easy to do.When the bread was ready i could put the bird finally in the owen,it fit just right but i could not bake nothing next to it.For
half an hour it was silent,after the owen sounded someone bombing inside.What was that?
Also really strange the beer was almost full when i finished baking..i did something wrong?But the chicken came out really nice and juicy but less beer taste than we expected..Also i did a really old trick what i am using when ever i make chicken..i cut out
the fat from the back of the bird and melt in a pan,it becomes fluid and i just pour over the chicken.It sticks on immediatly and becomes much more crispy at the end.
We had a big lunch,we all went really quiet...
Few hour -resting,cleaning,watching,resting- episode later i figured out we all deserve some nice dessert.
The problem, what i have here the oven.It is really old,gas one what is basically burns down every modern cake..my grandma knew(she have now a new nice oven..she is a modern one)how to bake in these,but i had never made anything good in it.Ok, i thought recipes
what i don't have to bake and i came up with a traditional hungarian one.It contains poppy seeds what is difficult for you to get,but if anyone interested about this recipe, i love to share...this sweet need 'hangover' rolls or bread, we use kifli what is
a boomerang form bakery.We making a vanilla sauce pour it on the chopped bakery add also cracked poppy seeds and just eat or bake a tiny bit.Its a simple,eggscelent..recipe.So i think im done for today i was also serving all day some day-boarder tea(we call
it like that,its cheap black tea with a lots of water lots of sugar and fake lemon juice....)to keep everyone alive.
It's been a nice sunday.
